FIRE BUGS AT WORK.
One Fire Possibly and one Fire
Positively Incendiary In one
The different towns In the state
have uudorgone a sories of Incendiary
ilros which have resulted vory dis
astrously for them. Dallas had ovor
thirty fires during the month of
August, 1891. Sau Antonio has since
Iibb gone through a similar experi
ence, having as many as eight big
fires in one night. Other towns have
have suffer Buffered in a greater or
less degree. Who knows but that tho
Incendiary who did such deadly
work In tho cities above named is
now in Waco? The two fires last
night will givo credouco to suoh an
opinion. Tlio tire ou ppeiguc street
originated in a small back room used
for the storage of boxes and empty
cans, and had no material which
could smoulder any length or time.
There had been no one In that part of
the store for over twenty-four hours
and the only reasonable origin that
can bo attributed is that of inoend
inrisni. About an hour later another
fire started and this timo there lean bo
no doubt that the flro or attemptod fire
was of incendiary origin. What caut-o
any ono could havo for burning tho
latter place would be hard to guoss,
for the ownor Is only slightly known
hero and is a non-resldont. Tho house
was unooouplod and uninsured. Thoro
could apparently be no gains to any
onewhatover by the burning of this
place. In the first case a ohance at
theft In tho hurry of removing goods
might havo caused tho villain to sot
tho store on flro, but there was noth
ing of the kind to serve for an excuse
iu the other. Evory citizen and ofiloo
should keepa oloso watoh and catch
the lncendmry if possible.
A CRIMINAL ASSAULT.
IMTI3 OF Till: ASSAILANT
Tlio Daughter of u AVcll-linou'ii
I'uniicr l.lvliiK Near Axlcll u
Criminally AkbiMiltcrt by ?Iil
Kurlc- A .J'onko in I'urkiiit.
Saturday afternoon a farmer named
Mit Earle, living near Axtell, at
tempted a criminal assault on a little
thirteen year old daughter of William
Smith, who also lives in the samo vi
cinity. Earlo was arrested soon alter
the- assault was committed and taken
before Justice Harper for an examin
ing trial. He was refused bond
and was under guard Saturday
night awaiting the early morn
ing train for this oity when
he suddenly took leg bail and has not
been seen sin6e. When he tnado his
escape his guards fired scvoral shot
after him some of which took effect as
was cvidenced)by a pool of blood whioh
was found the next morning in a corn
field. Officers woro telegraphed for and
Deputy Sheriffs Whaloy and Crippen
went out. They got there about dark
yestorday but could do little. This
morning about djy-light they sur
rounded the houses of two uncles of
Earle's but failed to find him at cither
place. At one of tho houses however
they found his uncle in bed dressed
with everything to show that ho had
been up all night. The officers do not
think that he is badly hurt. They left
a posso of citizens and local officers
still in pursuit and think that he will
soon he captured.
The report as above given was ob
tained from the officers named and is
correct as far as they are concerned.
Other advices from tho scone are
thghtly different in the general com
pleotion. The young lady Miss Lee
Smith is positive in hor assertion that
her assailant is Mit Earle, whilo his
friends say that in her excitement she
mistook some one else for Earlo and
that ho oan prove an alibi. Thoy also
give as his exouso for running that he
feared lynohing at tho hands of the
neighbors 01 tho young
The opinion of the ppople living in
the vicinity where the assault occur
red is quito varied. Few if any, how
ever believe that ho has esoaped un
hurt. Some think that he is f eorcted
in the dense chapparell and has plenty
of frionds to wait on him and dress his
wounds for it is certain that he is
wounded. There are others, and they
aro in the majority, too, who bolieve
that tho posses who first
started after him Saturday
night found him soon enough
and took care of him as such men
should be when found guilty. Plenty
are found who think that tho many
friends of the young lady took the
law into their own hands when the
caught Earle and that ho was hung
and riddled with bullets and after
wards buried so tint no trace of him
could over be found to bring them
The scone of the whole affair is
about fivo miles south of Axtell on
The man who is accused of com
mitting so dastardly a orime is a young
farmer twonty-two years of ago. Ho
has a wife and family and has hitherto
born a good reputation.
